Bassisgreat Posted August 15, 2005 Report Share Posted August 15, 2005 Hi, I have a nice pink ivory board at home that I am going to get a top out of for a guitar for the GF and a fingerboard for a fretless bass for myself. It's a really great bright pink with wild compact fmaming all throughout. I've heard that Pink Ivory, along with Purpleheart and other colored woods, has a tendency to darken with age and exposure to light. I would like to counteract this as much as possible to retain the color of the woods over the years that the instruments will be played. What kind of clear finish would best acheive this? I probably won't be using the Pink Ivory for a bit, as I am still working on my first bass, and I want to make sure my skills are up to snuff before slicing that board open, but I wanted to start getting ideas for a finish asap.
